We stayed in Western Cabin #314 for one night in late May, 2013. The cabin had a porch with two rocking chairs, gas fireplace, 2 queen beds, nice bathroom (great shower), and a small table with two chairs. Everything was clean and relatively new, considering that the construction is essentially a log cabin.

When reserving online, keep checking back because the status/availability changes many times each day. You can always cancel a previous reservation and make a new one.

When we arrived, after the beautiful drive, we took a walk around the location of the Western cabins and noted which ones had the best locations. We then made some specific requests at the front desk and they were able to help us. They assign cabins once at approx. 2p and again at approx 4p.

Book a reservation for dinner in the lodge online before you arrive. Then check with the concierge to request a window during sunset-- incredible!!

Don't miss the Bright Angel Trail and drinks on the lodge patio at dusk. It's truly a special place.

Room Tip: In our opinion, you should avoid these Western Cabins: 343, 344, 347, 348, 351, 352, 355, and 356...

I think we stayed in the Frontier Cabins, 2 nights. They are small duplexes not too far from the lodge and main dining. Ours contained a single bed, and a double bed, a desk and a chair. There was a phone and a coffee maker and a heater. The bathroom was small but everything mechanical worked. My husband complained that he had to take a luke warm shower one morning. The back wall of our cabin was shared and paper thin. However we had quiet neighbors and all was well. There is central parking and you compete with the day visitors for a spot. They do have a temporary closer parking space so that you can unload and roll your luggage down the small sidewalks between cabins. You can also request a porter to help you. The porter drives a golf cart and will meet you in front of the lodge, take you to your car and then escort you to your cabin. Ours was very helpful. I did not have a problem with the cabins. We came here to see the rim, take pictures and hike. I did not expect luxurious accomodations and luxurious they are not! However we had a shower, flush toilet and a clean warm bed to sleep in. If you plan on really spending your time in the cabin, rent something else. You will not like these. Otherwise, save some money and stay in one of these...get out and enjoy the park.

We stayed in a western cabin with view. The room was clean, bathroom small but clean. Fridge and coffeemaker in room. Fireplaces and porch with rocking chairs a nice extra. The view was spectacular.

We stayed two nights in a little cabin that's part of the North Rim Grand Canyon Lodge. I reserved several weeks in advance because it fills up, and I understand why. The price was relatively cheap, the little cabin was very clean and cozy, laid out in a little "village" of these small cabins, the lodge itself is huge, impressive, and the view is spectacular. Also, it is located near all kinds of hikes and drives; it's a great place form which to explore and experience the north rim. The cabins are very small and simple, but given that the bed was comfortable, there was plenty of hot water, the place was really clean, and there were lighted walkways from the lodge to the cabin, I wouldn't call it rustic. The lodge is large and welcoming. It has several dining options, from cheap to relatively elegant and expensive, as well as snacks and souvenir shops, historical info, a large balcony with amazing views, and terrific short hikes out to viewpoints just below it. There are a lot of people there, but it wasn't too commercialized and didn't feel too crowded for us for a couple of nights. During the days we drove to different hiking locations - all pretty close, diverse, and really spectacular. It is simple, but lovely. And what an astonishing thing it is to experience the north rim of the Grand Canyon.

Room Tip: Google the website and there are plenty of pics and more info.

Just a couple of points so you are in the know.
1. There are no rooms in the lodge
2. The lodge complex has a dining room, deli, bar/coffee shop, meeting room, gift shop, and porch overlooking the Grand Canyon (actually 3 porches, one large open, one small open, and one enclosed with glass)
3. Rooms are all cabins located in clusters (some tighter clusters than others) on either side of the North Rim community.
4. There are several different cabin types and names, I will talk about the only ones we stayed in.

My wife and I stayed for a rim to rim backpacking trip in the first week of June 2013.

Pioneer Cabin: our first night was in the Pioneer cabins # 515. I am not sure if all Pioneer cabins are the same. Ours was closely situated among many other cabins that were of equal size. The cabins were maybe 10 feet apart from each other. You could hear people as they walked by but you could not hear them through to the other cabins.

The cabin was split into 3 rooms which included:
a. primary bedroom with a queen size bed, bench, coffee maker, and refrigerator
b. bathroom with shower
c. 2nd bedroom with bunk beds, day bed, sink, and small desk

The rooms were small but clean and adequate.

Western cabin: we stayed here when we made it back around to the North rim after our hike. Our cabin number was 331. It was located very close (100 feet) to the side canyon that joins the main canyon. It is also the canyon where the North Kaibab trail is located. Here are a few points about this cabin:
a. Our cabin has a fairly large room with 2 queen beds (that are pretty comfortable) desk, table, heater, gas log fireplace (with a timer), bathroom with a shower tub, closet/dressing room that also houses the coffee maker and refrigerator.
b. nice porch with 2 rocking chairs overlooking the side canyon I described earlier.
c. These cabin are more spread out than the Pioneer cabins
d. They adjoin a second cabin and the door between is very thin so you hear your neighbors very well. Maybe we just had loud neighbors, I don't know.

Even considering the loud neighbors I thought the Western Cabin was more relaxing. Maybe it was more space, maybe it was the porch that I enjoyed sitting on, whatever. I did like it.

While here we ate lunch In the dining room. We had the buffet and it was very good. Food was hot, fresh, and full of flavor. Staff was very good.

Ate another time at the deli, we both had the elk chili. It was a little over priced and bland. Service was fine though.

One of the best parts of the lodge is the porch over looking the Grand Canyon. We enjoyed sitting out there and watching the sun set. They have chairs and tables set up so you can sit out with your favorite beverage and watch the canyon as it transforms by the moment with the setting sun. The crowds were not that bad and it really is a relaxing spot.

Room Tip: Book early. A year in advance.

Stayed 2 nights (June 1 & 2) with wife and 9 year old son. The hard facts are below, but here is the bottom line: this is a bucket list family experience - dont let the words "rustic" or "old" stop you from doing this. I am funny about where I will stay - the courtyard Marriott is usually my entry level starting point - so I was concerned about the rustic accommodations at the lodge. Still, the draw of the north rim outweighed my fear of staying in a "cabin." booked a western cabin on the lodge website and simply requested a rim view (I think they charge more for the few cabins that are literally on the rim (cabins 301, 305, 306, 309). These 4 offer unobstructed views of the rim, but I would not want cabin 301 because it sits directly beside the lodge patio which is loud at sunset with everyone socializing while watching the sun go down. We were in 308 which did have a view to the canyon because it was situated on a corner. There are other cabins that have no other man made structures between them and the rim, but they are set farther back and have plenty of trees (it's nature after all and we should be happy they haven't been cut down in order to sell more rim view accommodations). The cabin was clean - 2 double beds, a desk, bathroom, and another little room my wife used as a make up room that had a mirror and counter space. Little electric or gas fireplace ( we didn't use) and windows that open (no ac - we didn't need it either). The linens on bed were clean, they maintain the cabins well. The bathroom is small, but clean. Honestly, I think the accommodations complemented perfectly the desired tone of this trip - to experience a natural wonder with minimal distractions, and yet have clean sleeping quarters. Sitting on the cabin porch in rocking chairs and listening to the wind come up through the canyon was awesome. And that would never have been possible with all the noise generated by the luxuries of room service, swimming pools, air conditioning, and television. My family will remember this special time forever. Go do this!

We had been to the South Rim...but is seemed too commercial and crowded. So, this time I made reservations at the North Rim. The difference was everything! The extremely rustic pioneers duplexes were an adjustment. There was all one needs, but nothing extra!

The interesting part was the wonderful folks who work there. Sweet and responsive would describe them. Some as young as 21 others in their 70's. Yet all were good to be around and they were well trained.

The food in the main dining room was excellent and unique. Three nice meals a day and a view you will not believe!

Room Tip: Be an outdoors person...it is swell there!
